If you’ve chosen your wedding style, then chances are, you’re starting to plan the details to match. And along with that comes the choice of your wedding day sweets! For many, it may be appealing to switch it up with clever treat alternatives, but for others, it’s all about the classic towering statement cake.

If you’re planning a boho wedding, and you’ve chosen to serve cake on your big day, it may seem like the two can’t go hand in hand. But think again. Boho means everything from organic details, Earthy vibes, and greenery to plenty of dried florals, natural elements, and color palettes of jewel tones or earth tones—and there are plenty of ways to incorporate these gorgeous details into your cake design.
